Who Will Win The Golden Boot At Euro 2020?
The field is stacked with spectacular goal-scoring prowess for Euro 2020, but who will win the prestigious Golden Boot? A list of the winners of the Euro Golden Boot includes stars like Alan Shearer, Antoine Griezmann, David Villa, and Fernando Torres. Will Harry Kane once again lead the way in the Golden Boot race for a second consecutive major tournament? In this article, I will go through the bookies’ favourites for top goalscorer at this year’s tournament.
# 1: Harry Kane 5/1 Odds
Considering he earned the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot title in Russia, Kane’s international goalscoring record speaks for itself. Since he holds the record for the most penalties scored in England’s history, he may improve on his total with VAR in place at Euro 2020. With another Golden Boot on the line, England’s captain is expected to maintain his impressive goal-scoring record at this summer’s Euros.
No surprise, considering Kane is the odds-on favourite to be England’s tournament goal scorer for the second time in a row. Despite being as short as 8/15 with one bookmaker, England’s most clinical number 9 has many euro 2021 betting offers available starting at the market price of 5/6.
# 2: Romelu Lukaku 7/1
Belgium is the favourite to win the Euro 2020 tournament, which should come as no surprise given their squad of world-class players. Romelu Lukaku will lead the frontline on his own and he had a great season in Italy for Inter Milan, where he scored 24 times. If his team does make it to the final, you can be sure that Lukaku will have a lot of goals to his name.
# 3: Kylian Mbappe 11/1
Mbappe will want to prove that he is the best player in the world and ready to fill the boots of Ronaldo and Messi. He possesses the necessary skills, but has yet to demonstrate consistency. If he can hit top form at the Euros, he is more than capable of becoming the top scorer.
# 4: Cristiano Ronaldo 14/1
You would be crazy to bet against Ronaldo as, even in his twilight years, he was able to be the top goalscorer in the Italian league, scoring 29 goals last season for Juventus. It will probably be the last time we see him play at the Euros and he will want to go out with a bang. At 14/1 he is certainly good value and worth a punt.
# 5: Memphis Depay 16/1
Memphis Depay scored 20 goals for Lyon last season along with a further 6 goals in the Champions League. He finally seems to be becoming the player that everyone thought he was going to be when he was at Manchester United.
There are several other players you should consider if you are thinking about placing a wager on the Golden Boot. These include Karim Benzema (16/1), Antoine Griezmann is 25/1, Robert Lewandowski (25/1), Timo Werner (35/1), and Serge Gnabry (45/1).
